Orlando 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

Treasure Coast 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

On May 22, 2014, Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com in partnership with the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast Area Agency on Aging / Your Aging Resource Center and the Council on Aging of Martin County, hosted the 2014 Treasure Coast Fearless Caregiver Conference. The event was held at the Charles and Rae Kane Center in Stuart, Florida. This was the 135th conference held around the nation by the publication since 1998. More than 55,000 family and professional caregivers in 28 states have learned how to be Fearless Caregiver advocates for their loved ones, clients and themselves.

The expert Question and Answer panel at the Treasure Coast Fearless Caregiver Conference consisted of Gregory G. Keane, Esq., B.S., M.B.A., J.D., LL.M in Taxation, LL.M in Estate Planning of The Keane Law Firm; Veronica A. Castro, LCSW, C-ASWCM, Caregiver Support Coordinator, WPB VA Medical Center; Darlene Forage, Project Director, SHINE, Area Agency on Aging of Palm Beach-Treasure Coast, Your Aging Resource Center; Brenda Horvath, RN, Nurse Liaison, Humana; and Kelly Powers Salvato, RN, Owner/Administrator, Sunny Days Assisted Living Facilities.

A packed room of caregivers was able to ask direct questions of these caregiving thought leaders, and spend the day learning about the latest techniques, products, services and innovations they need in their role as family caregivers.

“I was extremely proud to share the day with such an outstanding panel of experts, family caregivers, exhibitors and partners,” said Gary Barg, the conference host as well as Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com, and author of the books, The Fearless Caregiver and Caregiving Ties That Bind. “Also joining us to discuss hearing health and take questions from family caregivers was Elizabeth Janovsky from CaptionCall.”
